Registering municipality

Are you moving to or within Breda? Welcome to our municipality!
It is important to register online with the municipality of Breda. You can register the move from four weeks before the move until 5 days after the move. Note: you can get a fine if you do not register in time!

Good to know: the municipality informs your health insurer, the tax authorities and DUO of your change of address. This means that you do not need to notify them of your change of address. You still need to do that with, for example, your GP, bank, educational institution and sports club.

Do not forget to register with a general practitioner and dentist in Breda. Read more about registering with health care providers here. It is compulsory for everyone to take out health insurance.

Are you moving from abroad or staying in Breda for at least 4 months during the next six months?
Within five days after arrival you have to register in person at the municipality. Make an appointment here to register at the city office.

Do not forget to deregister at the end of the study period as well. You can make an appointment for deregistration here
